WHAT'S INCLUDED IN A PERSONAL BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?
• Phone consultation to learn who you are, who your audience is, & what stories you want your images to tell.
• Personalized shoot locations chosen specifically to tell your brand's story.
• Unlimited outfit changes, mobile What to Wear Guide, & wardrobe styling available via text to help you choose outfits for the shoot.
• Detailed shot list outlining the plan for the day sent for your approval.
• Licensed hair & makeup artist on set for touch ups (Additional fee).
• A mix of custom styled stock photos, business headshots, & lifestyle photos that tell your story.
• Pose coaching from me, a former pro model.
• Welcome video for your website (Additional fee).
• 2-8 hour shoot to capture several month's worth of imagery for your brand (exact amount of time depends on package purchased).
• 40-1,000 digital images delivered via online gallery 2 weeks after your shoot (exact quantity depends on package purchased).
• Commercial use license giving you the legal right to use your images on items you sell, for example, book covers. Regular portrait photographers do not include this & legally you can't use your images on items you sell without it. Commercial use licenses typically cost over $100 per photo but with me, they are included.
Headshots are simple photos that clients typically use as a social media icon, on their business cards, or on LinkedIn. They are not personalized. They help entrepreneurs look friendly & approachable, but do not tell their story at a quick glance, you must dig deeper to learn who the woman is behind the photo. Headshot sessions do not include pre-planning, wardrobe styling, etc. Nor are they custom; all headshot sessions are booked on special headshot days & shot on a gray background at our studio.
Brand photos are used on websites & social media to tell a story about the woman in the photo. For example, it's clear that my client above is a home-based wardrobe stylist. Check out my Pinterest board for more examples of storytelling images. These in-depth sessions are completely custom. They require extensive planning as no two sessions are alike, and include a mixture of headshots, lifestyle photos, & custom stock images, all styled in the brand's colors, as well as wardrobe styling & more.
• I know how to create images that sell because I've worked in corporate marketing for the last 10+ years on Fortune 500 brands like 7-11, Purina, & Nothing Bundt Cakes.
• I’ve won national photography contests & had my work published in over 20 magazines in the US, Canada, Spain, & around the world.
• I'm a former model, actress, & modeling school instructor which means I know how to help even the most camera shy woman light up in front of the camera.
WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE
ashley K, PRIVATE LABEL MASTERY
I'm an online entrepreneur & coach. I have a course and work with 40-50 clients at a time. Things are busy. My online presence is very important as clients judge me & my work by my photos. I did a shoot with Candace & I was blown away by the first-class treatment I received from her entire team! I didn't hesitate at all to make the investment. If I get just one more client, the shoot pays for itself. I couldn't believe how hard they all worked the ENTIRE day! I felt like the most important person in the world and pampered. I'm very picky about my makeup and hair, and honestly, my makeup & hair looked the best it's looked in 32 years. Candace's artist is phenomenal. Wish I could look that way everyday. If you're wondering if you need new images for your online marketing needs, just do it. Candace will take GREAT care of you!
Candace is incredible. She was able to pull off exactly what I wanted and needed for my branding. She was there throughout the whole process, from picking out the right outfits, finding the perfect location, to posing. She made sure my photos really represented my brand. I am not an easy person to photograph as I'm picky. But she was very helpful & patient to get the exact photos I wanted. I'm confident that these pictures are going to help boost my business because they make all of my marketing look more polished and really represent what I do. I'm thrilled with how my pictures came out!

Candace has such a sweet, exuberant personality and she makes you feel comfortable posing for personal branding photos. This was my first experience doing a photo shoot, & it was AMAZING. I was super nervous about the whole thing beforehand, but she walked me through every step, and every detail was fabulous. She puts so much work and passion into what she does and it ultimately shows in every photo. Totally loved the outcome of mine. My friends and family couldn't stop complimenting her work either when they saw my pics. I want to someday give the gift of doing a photo shoot with Candace to someone I love. It was a special moment for me and I know it'll be for them. Totally recommend!

STARTING AT $1999 FOR BRANDING SESSIONS, $499 FOR HEADSHOTS
As an entrepreneur, you have many stories to tell about the woman behind your brand. One might be that you work from home, in which case we will take photos of you at your computer. Another might be that you love to bake cookies with the kids in your downtime, so we'll get photos of that too. Whatever YOUR story is, I'm here to capture it in a way that shows the woman behind your brand authentically. For a more extensive list of story ideas, check out my Pinterest board.
Q: what's a story?
Personal branding photography is a little different than traditional portrait photography. Legally, in order to use your images in marketing materials, you need a commercial license. However, as we retain the copyright, the commercial license does NOT allow you to sell your images as stock photography or in any other way. Also, just incase you're wondering, commercial use means your images will NOT have annoying watermarks on them & you do NOT have to credit me when you use them, though shout-outs are always appreciated & returned.
Q: what's a commercial license?
YES! I LOVE to travel & usually plan a trip to at least one city outside of Dallas per year to photograph new clients. Current destination shoot goals include LA, Vegas, Ireland, & Greece. I'm also willing to come to you anywhere in the US at no additional cost if you + at least 2 friends book a session. Or, I'll go anywhere in the world just for you if you cover my flight & hotel. Contact me for more info!
Q: DO YOU SHOOT OUTSIDE OF DALLAS?
I remember my first photoshoot; the photographer just told me, "Go stand over there," then never gave any direction after that. I felt really awkward & as a result, there were only 1 out of 100+ photos that I liked. This is NOT how I work. I direct you all the way down to your fingertips. Even if you've never done something like this before, you don't need to worry with a modeling coach (I used to model & teach modeling professionally at a school) by your side! Additionally, you won't have to wait until your viewing to see how beautiful you are as I will show you the back of my camera during the shoot. A lot of photographers don't want you to see un-finished photos, but I believe that showing them during the shoot helps women become more comfortable in their own skin based on my own experiences in front of the camera. Gradually, as I show you great picture after great picture, your confidence will increase which will lead to the dreamy photos you've always wanted.
Q: I've never done something like this before & have no idea how to pose...will my pictures turn out ok?
Because personal brand photo shoots happen all over the country, hair & makeup is not included in our packages. However, if you come to Dallas, we can add my artist on at extra cost, or if you're in another city, I can make recommendations on who you should book. I DO recommend you get your hair & makeup done professionally for your shoot because it will make a huge difference in the quality of your photos & help you obtain a more professional look.
